Flower cards - March card class

So class this last Friday was on flowers. Aren't flowers wonderful! Just love them so of course I have a ton of supplies to do things with flowers.

We did 4 cards this week. Just had too many things I wanted to share. This one was super easy. The green leaves were on the paper. It was a package of wedding invites I got super cheap from Staples a while back. The flower is Stampin Up punch with adhesive pearls. The other is a Stampin Up stamp (Sale-A-Bration You're Lovely)with the purple cut with a die and the after stamping again, punching it with a 1 3/4 inch punch. 

In this one, the background is the Stampin Up embossing flowers with a stamp from Peaceful Petals by Stampin Up. I colored it with colored pencils (two shades of yellow and an orange) and then painted with water to blend. 

My daughter ( who is selling Stampin Up now) showed me her technique for the background paper. You use very watered down ink to stamp with and get the watercolor look.  Everything here was Stampin up. 

This one is more wedding paper. just cut a little strip of it. The hello is a new die I got while in Illinois recently. It is by Paper Smooches (  Simple but so nice.

Well, hope you are inspired to go play!!
